Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This is my first attempt at a narrative portrait after viewing the class. I am not happy with the quality of the photo, sorry. It does have better depth of color than this is showing. I followed the techniques in the class as best I can, and look forward to trying more paintings with in this technique.

Is the piece for sale? No

I changed the edge of the rock in the background so it does not seem to repeat the pattern of the waves so much. I am not sure what else I need to do to finish this?

The colors are very harmonious, a nice atmosphere for the whole piece.

Nice job on this! There is a good amount of contrast and the landscape details are nicely rendered. I'd maybe considering adding a very light glaze of pure color over each area to give it a little more depth though. A very light yellow/orange glaze over the skin tones and hair, and just a bit of blue over the water, for instance, will help it feel even more lively.
